I had enough and wrote a lengthy email on Wednesday, it did go on a bit – I vented everything out. Had an immediate result on Thursday and I got two letters. It was basically an outline of what was said without the details. Just a generic outline, they’re right I’ve been late but others are too. I hate the allusion that I’m some sort of super user of Facebook, someone who always wear the headphones, someone with a bad attitude towards work, and somehow I’m guilty of substandard quality. I utterly dispute this, it’s ridiculous. I’ve shown the letter around and everyone says it’s bollocks. It’s written to me like I’m a kid. I responded to the HR guy on Saturday requesting for more details, and he simply told me to contact the company from now on… but, isn’t he the HR guy?! Anyway… I’m awaiting a reply now…
Is this worth the fight? Yes, for my dignity.
I started ok but after the warm-up my mid-feet were pretty strained, I felt knackered for some reason – my bum and back legs didn’t get the workout I wanted. I had really stiff ankles and achey feet. I went through the hour in discomfort… I don’t know why. Maybe I overdid myself trying to get the heels in. I was shattered from the lack of sleep and a long day at work as well, never a nice combination. The across the room was pretty exhausting – the middle of my feet were killing me… maybe I didn’t stretch enough? Something was off, my legs weren’t ready at all. Made me feel old… and out of fitness!
I used to be fitter than this, I miss it. Maybe it’s time to go running again, or just be more active! We tried some toe-pickups at the barre, I thought that was useful… but couldn’t do too much. We finished our weekly routine, it’s actually quite cool and I was so, so tired at the end. It didn’t feel like a normal Monday because I wore out so quickly – although what if… this is how I’m supposed to feel and I was just coasting up to this point? If that’s the case – wow, better get in shape!
We didn’t progress that much in rehearsal, eeeek, I expected more but a few people have dropped out. We changed the routine slightly from last week, it’ll be fine as JH would always say. God my feet are TIRED!
It’s such a popular class! Always new peeps, in and out. Our rehearsal ran late and we joined the warm-up… my shins didn’t like the jumps at all! Need a physio! I loved the sit-ups and planking. The across the room was ok, I’ve been trying to stay in control – less flapping and more use of strength and balance. My arms fared better. Andi was back, but not for Jazz rehearsal – she’s doing Contemporary this time. It’s been a hot session, culminating in a fun routine at the end. Just another night of refining Jazz, plod on!
The rehearsal went well, we’re already halfway – Laura won’t be here next week so it’s good to know we’re well covered. We’re prepared in Jazz! No mucking about that lass! I actually had a good time, it’s been a fun Jazz session.
